This is Life
I must have slept well. I woke this morning before the alarm and strangly felt energized and clear. Strangly because I haven’t felt this for some time. I remember a time when every morning I’d wake early and feel the full appreciation of life. So it was a nice surprise. I got up and went for a walk. The heavy rain over night had stopped and there was a freshness in the air. Waterdrops still hanging of pine trees and shrubs. A crystal clear feeling.
What I’d like to inquire into that feels important is this full appreciation of life. With the idea of starting a new business on the horizon, this feeling today propels me into appreciating the moment. This moment (now) is all we have. Life is a series of moments. I’m super grateful and feel blessed with my life. There has always been a craving for this creative business from an early child. When I would dress up, sometimes in outlandish clothing or even my favorite a wedding dress! I would carry a clip board and boss my friends and sister around. As if I was running my own little empire.
However, there has been something blocking me From beginning. I’ve felt stuck. I’ve been finding my way but always ideas bubbling under the surface. I do believe timing is everything.
You know that quote “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”-Marianne Williamson
There‘s a fear there around changing, transforming into your potential. Stepping from where I am now into my future self. But change happens all the time you can’t control change. Sometimes change happens so gradually that you don’t notice it. I think like my last post you have to simply focus on the moment. On the step or action your about to take. And before you know it you’ll have evolved without fully knowing how. Like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis.
So with all this in mind feel the fear and do it anyway. Take the plunge. Step into the unknown. “If you’re not scared a lot you’re not doing very much.”- Robin Sharma
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” T. S. Eliot
I’m balancing the desire the dream with the practical, sensible decisions. Will I be able to afford the space especially with no clients to begin with? Will I manage with start up costs? How will I generate clients and maintain them?
I think after all I’ve read about buisness a solid business plan is essential. I think I’m on the right path. Well I’m on a path moving forward. This is life!
